Can I transfer my frequent flyer points or miles to another program?

Information verified correct on March 27th, 2017

frequent-flyerFrom Qantas and Emirates to Virgin Australia and Singapore Airlines, discover how you can earn and redeem rewards with more than one airline.

Frequent flyer programs are becoming increasingly popular as airlines try to attract frequent customers and reward them for their loyalty. While this offers a wide range of benefits to customers, some frequent flyers find themselves wondering if it’s possible to transfer their reward points to another airline’s frequent flyer program to take advantage of a particular flight or reward.

Unfortunately, it’s not possible to transfer your points from one frequent flyer program to another because different programs have different terms and conditions surrounding how you earn points and what they can be spent on. However, it is possible to redeem your frequent flyer points for flights and rewards with another airline if it happens to be a ‘partner airline’ of your chosen flight provider.

Many of the world’s most popular airlines form partnerships with other airlines to offer flight networks that span the globe. They also allow customers to enjoy frequent flyer member benefits across a host of partner airlines, including redeeming their frequent flyer points for tickets on codeshare flights, which is where two or more airlines share the same flight.

Under some programs it’s also possible to earn tier miles when flying with partner airlines, allowing you to reach higher levels of membership in your frequent flyer program.

How to redeem and earn frequent flyer points with other airlines

While it’s not always possible to transfer frequent flyer points to another program, some airlines allow you to redeem your points for flights and other rewards with ‘partner airlines’.

Take a look at the frequent flyer programs and airline partnerships provided by some of the world’s most popular airlines.

      Anndy | March 8, 2017

      Hi Kim,

      Thanks for your question.

      Generally, you can’t transfer your points or miles from one frequent flyer program to another, unless the providers have a special arrangement. In this case, you can’t transfer Krisflyer miles to Asiana Club. However, Krisflyer miles can be redeemed for flights with Asiana and other partner airlines.

      You can check this page for more information on Krisflyer miles redemption options.

      Cheers,

      May | January 9, 2017

      Hi Gowri,

      Thanks for your question.

      Unfortunately, no. It is not possible to transfer your KrisFlyer miles to Qantas, as the terms and conditions surrounding both programs differ. As they are also not partners, you may not be able to redeem your KrisFlyer miles for flights with Qantas.

      However, you can use your KrisFlyer miles to book for flights with Singapore Airlines and its partners, which are mentioned above.

      Hi Sanjeeva,

      Thanks for your question.

      Unfortunately no. You can’t transfer/convert your points between KrisFlyer and Skyward Miles, as the terms and conditions surrounding the two programs differ from each other. Since they are also not partners, you cannot also redeem your KrisFlyer points for flights with Emirates or vice versa.

      Hi Yannick,

      Thanks for your question.

      Unfortunately, you can’t transfer your points from one frequent flyer program to another, in this case from Lufthansa to the Royal Orchid Plus Program. However, since they are partner airlines, you can redeem your miles with Lufthansa for flights with Thai Airways.

      Hi Robyn,

      Thanks for your question.

      Unfortunately, you can’t transfer your Emirates miles to Qantas Frequent Flyer Program.

      While your Emirates Skywards Miles must be redeemed before the expiration date, you may want to consider using them to book a reward ticket that is valid for up to 12 months. This way, your miles will not be wasted.

    Is it possible to convert Thai airways mileage from multiple family members into one family member account in Krisflyer program or Velocity program?

    • Staff
      Anndy | November 30, 2016

      Hi Owen,

      Thanks for your question.

      With Royal Orchid Plus, you can redeem Awards for friends, family or any other person after he or she has been included as your Award Nominee. However, I can’t find any option for family points pooling or transfer of points from one person to another on Royal Orchid website. I’ve also read in several forums that Royal Orchid does not allow family members to pool points. You can get in touch with Royal Orchid to confirm this,

      Also, it’s not possible to transfer points from Royal Orchid to other programs such as Krisflyer or Velocity.

      Cheers,
      Anndy
